Why do we have to respect the Flag to be Patriots?


Our flag is merely a piece of cloth. Some though, seem to endow it with certain patriotic powers, as if it held the country together with its stars and stripes. Few however, ever stop to think of the atrocities enacted beneath its folds in the name of freedom. Tens of thousands, if not more, Native Americans were starved and subjected to diseases under the noble flag. The bison herds were made almost extinct in the effort to cut off their food source. The Cherokee lands and homes were stolen from them in Georgia. Most of the slaves were brought here on ships flying the US flag. Just sayin'.
